Product description


'Within her constantly original overall argument, Lee Horsley gives or implies a fresh, carefully nuanced reading of each of the hundreds of books and many films she touches on. This study of the twentieth-century thriller in all of its darker manifestations is from now on indispensable.' - Martin Priestman, Roehampton University, UK
'An event to delight the heart and invigorate the mind of every fan of crime fiction and every scholar of modernism's sensational "dark side". Lee Horsley brings noir into the twenty-first century with panoramic aplomb, dexterity, and rigour, in a new edition every bit as accessible, erudite, witty and informed as the original.' - Charles Rzepka, Boston University, USA
'Unmatched in its scope, its concision, and the acuity of its readings, The Noir Thriller is indispensable. Horsley captures the rich variety of noir fiction like no other critic and in doing so gives this transatlantic, transgeneric tradition of writing the status it deserves.' - David Schmid, University at Buffalo, The State University of New York, USA
